The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the lakefront trail will stay open for pedestrians and cyclists, but will detour around construction. Area homes and businesses will be accessible.
The $60 million project will go south of the Chicago River to an area park. It'll separate the lakefront trail from two busy streets and the area. The flyover is expected to be finished in 2018.
